Science Special

On Fridays, we round up our favorite science links on climate change and share them with you:

  • For all our scientist followers - Environmental Research Letters has a special issue on negative emissions. Details on paper submission are here. 
  • Carbon removal is in dire need of policy support. What would that look like? James Meadowcroft lays out short and long term policy options for carbon removal. 
  • Vocabulary lesson of the week: BECCS (noun.) - biomass energy with carbon capture and storage. For potential and constraints, read up.
  • Brown and Cotton show the results from their field trials across California on carbon soil sequestration after the application of compost. Beneficial use of otherwise landfill waste, increased nitrogen, water retention, and increased soil carbon levels are just a few key reasons why further research and implementation are needed.
